They wanted Elam...plain and simple and were concerned after KC moved up for McDuffie.   

It was obvious cowboys weren't taking a corner. Also, look at the players that fell, Lloyd and Johnson. We panicked, plain and simple. Happy with Elam, trade up was not necessary.

The Patriots traded away their best OL for nothing. They replaced him with a soon to be 24 year old 3rd round talent in the 1st round. That might be the worst pick I've seen in the last decade.

How do you know this?  You, and anyone else outside of Dallas, have zero idea if they would have taken Elam.

Though another franchise may have put in an offer to trade up ahead of us.

It does clearly seem like beane panicked when mcduffie went though. Pats and kc trying to screw us again. 

Giving up a 4th for 2 spots when the lions went up 20 and gave up a 3rd. Thats unreal. 

 

 

Also forgetting swap of seconds.  Do you look at someone putting a down payment on a house and go "Wow they bought a house for only $20k what a steal"?

Cole Strange was #87 on my big board. Mid 3rd round grade.

 

That said, I did get the Pats position match right. I have mocked them a guard all offseason. I guarantee if Green or Johnson was still on the board they don't trade out of #21.

Both from Georgia too. Hope it works out like Nelson and Ruud for them.

 

Our very own 'Nightmares from Nebraska'. Thanks for that not so pleasant memory...I just threw up in my mouth a little.

But someone could have traded up for a CB.  Beane was watching all the trades going on and actually thought they might have to trade back because their guy wouldn't be there.

You must not have read anything in the Kaiir Elam thread yet. :lol: Beane and McDermott just destroyed our SB chances by taking him instead of Breece Hall or Christian Watson.
